Issue No. 11 | Animalia
The relationship between humans and animals is both fascinating and fraught. As children, creatures take center stage as the protagonists of our picture books, animated movies, and overstuffed toy boxes. As adults, we keep them as pets, put them on everything from currency to calendars, and murder them en masse for food. Our May issue explores these complexities in a menagerie of stories, including the new series The Book of Dog. Featuring voices from folks like Fred Armisen, Janeane Garofalo, and Lewis Black, this quartet of comedic shorts explores the dark side of dog breeding: man’s inhumanity to man’s best friend.
